The other day I posted that all administrators should blog (http://esheninger.blogspot.com). After reading some of the comments on my post I thought it would be a great idea for other administrators to submit their blogs here so that we all can learn from each other. So, if you are an educational leader and have a blog submit the link!

I use moodle for staff info presenting blogs and podcasts. Trying to get staff to see uses for the classroom. As a consultant I also have online book studies for PD using Rick Wormeli books. Very reasonable PD for educators w/o leaving the classroom. Free "Kindles" for group registration. www.mcqualityeducserv.com

Eric,
I'm not sure I can accurately describe what my blog as done for me as a learner. As a district-level and now a state-wide charter school administrator, I am very aware that my voice can have an impact on conversations relative to education and learning, so the ability to blog has provided me with the opportunity to not only make my views known, but also engage in constructive dialogue with others about what my thoughts may mean in a practical sense. For a naturally shy person such as myself, my blog (along with twitter) has given me a place to find my voice on a global level, and I am eternally grateful for that.

You can read and comment on my thoughts here: http://transleadership.wordpress.com/

For the benefit of my own sanity, the success of my school, and a chance to improve upon my practice, the best piece of advice I can give is to give yourself some "Me-Time." Turn off the computer, and reflect. Collect your thoughts, and then, share them! The more the merrier.

I blog when I have something to show off at school or when inspiration hits. Working on a challenge to blog everyday for a month really got me going. Right now I am blogging less than I did in June, but summer is for vacationing more and blogging less.

Anyway, I'd be delighted if any of you read and commented:

Thanks. Larry.

Editor, Funderstanding

I am the editor for Funderstanding, a site that aims to provide educators and parents with deep learning opportunities. The site's been around since 1996 and it is surprisingly popular given the fact that it's quite disorganized! We are in the process of working on a complete redesign.

We continually seek educators to write articles on a variety of topics.

We also seek individuals to create simulations that teach various subjects. For example,we have a very popular roller coaster simulation that teaches physics.

If you are interested in contributing to our site, I'd love to hear from you!

I was recently considering developing a blog (with the assistance of my building tech guru) and your exemplars and comments have been incredibly helpful. Thank you all!
